Why Melania Trump Leading The Public In The Lord’s Prayer At A Rally In Florida Was A Historic Event

By Michael Snyder
Melania Trump Prayer At Florida Rally - YouTube ScreenshotWe just witnessed Melania Trump’s finest moment as First Lady so far.  After a week in which her husband declared war on the mainstream media, Melania absolutely electrified a huge crowd at a rally in Melbourne, Florida by reciting the Lord’s Prayer.  What Donald Trump had to share afterwards was remarkable as well, but that night will always be remembered for what Melania did.  After beginning with the phrase “let us pray”, Melania stunned the entire world by slowly but carefully leading the crowd in the Lord’s Prayer, and it is being reported that the assembled throng responded to her prayer with “thunderous applause“.
She did not pronounce all of the words perfectly, but that didn’t matter.
What matters is that her courage enabled her to create the most powerful moment that we have seen from a First Lady in decades.  The following is from a transcript of her remarks

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed is your name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespasses against us.
‘Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.

If you have not seen footage of this incredible moment yet, you can watch it right here

One of the primary reasons why this moment evoked so much emotion is because the Lord’s Prayer is undeniably a Christian prayer.
Over the decades, our politicians have become very adept at speaking of “god” in a very generic sense.  Even when they pray, most of our politicians are careful to use universal language that could apply to almost any religion.
That is why what Melania Trump did was so radical.  By reciting the Lord’s Prayer, she was clearly identifying herself as a Christian, and there was absolutely no question about who she was addressing.
It was such a simple prayer, but needless to say it sent liberals into a social media frenzy.  They started calling her every name in the book and used some of the most foul language imaginable.
Some of the more moderate liberals objected to the prayer on the basis of separation of church and state, but nowhere in the Constitution does it say that our elected officials cannot be Christian.  And nowhere in the Constitution does it say that they cannot speak on matters of faith.
In fact, if we are to have any hope of turning this nation around we desperately need the favor of God, and that is why what Melania Trump did was so important.
In her prayer, she asked for God’s will to be done on Earth just as it is done in heaven.
If we truly were to follow that course, there would be no limits to what we could achieve as a people.
But in order for that to happen, we must completely change direction as a nation, and Melania’s prayer was also a prayer of repentance.
The phrase “forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespasses against us” was not a perfect quotation of the Lord’s Prayer, but it was immensely powerful.
By asking for forgiveness, that implies that we have done things that we need to be forgiven for.  And without a doubt, that list is very long.  We have killed tens of millions of babies since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973, we produce more pornography than the rest of the world combined, sexual immorality of every kind you can imagine is running rampant in our society, our entertainment is mostly pure filth, and we have pushed God and His ways out of almost every corner of public life.
If we want to get on the right track as a country, one of the very first things that should be done is to defund Planned Parenthood.  The Republicans finally have control of the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives, and so there are no more excuses.
If Donald Trump and the Republicans truly are “pro-life”, Planned Parenthood will be defunded in 2017.
But if it doesn’t happen, then they will share in the accountability for the Great American Holocaust, and the blood of every baby that is murdered from now on will be on their hands.
That is why this is one of the most important moments in American history.  If we don’t turn around now, I don’t think that we ever will, and choosing to go down the same path that we are currently on will only lead us to judgment.
So that is why I was so thrilled with Melania’s prayer.  By boldly identifying themselves as Christians, the Trumps are giving those of us that also consider ourselves to be Christians hope that a new day is ahead.
But it can’t just be words.  That is why what happens over the next few months is so incredibly important.
And of course the radical left is going to fight Donald Trump and his team every step of the way.  About a week ago, I wrote about the army of more than 30,000 activists that Barack Obama is commanding from his new home less than two miles away from the White House.  Well, now we have learned that Organizing for Action is going to be working with a network of other radical groups to disrupt town hall meetings all over the nation

Progressive activists continue to take a cue from the Tea Party movement with plans to funnel into town hall meetings this week while members of Congress are at home and make a ruckus.
Groups, including President Barack Obama’s Organizing for Action, are turning to a newer organization, Indivisible Guide, to coordinate tactics.
Launched in December by former Congressional staffers, Indivisible is providing activists with training manuals, such as one that explains how to have a ‘successful’ town hall.

The progressives hate Trump and they want to keep this nation going down the exact same road that we were heading under Barack Obama.
We are literally in a battle for the future of America, and the outcome is still to be determined.
But what Melania Trump did when she stepped behind that podium was a major step in the right direction, and hopefully we will be seeing much more of that from her and Donald in the future.

    • Thank you for your opinion.
      B Franklin at the Constitutional Convention of 1787
      “In this situation of this Assembly, groping as it were in the dark to find political truth, and scarce able to distinguish it when presented to us, how has it happened, sir, that we have not hitherto once thought of humbly applying to the Father of Lights to illuminate our understanding?
      In the beginning of the contest with Great Britain, when we were sensible of danger, we had daily prayer in this room for the Divine protection. Our prayers, sir, were heard, and they were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of a superintending Providence in our favor. . . . And have we now forgotten that powerful Friend? Or do we imagine we no longer need His assistance?
      I have lived, sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth – that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? We have been assured, sir, in the Sacred Writings, that “except the Lord build the House, they labor in vain that build it.” I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without His concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel. . . . I therefore beg leave to move that henceforth prayers imploring the assistance of Heaven, and its blessings on our deliberations, be held in this Assembly every morning before we proceed to business.”
      And that started the American tradition of starting ‘political’ meetings and assemblies with prayer.
      You are entitled to your opinion, no matter how ridiculous, but to proclaim it as “full stop” indicates how silly you are.

      • No, I’m sorry. You are silly, and very much so.
        You quoting boilerplate to someone who knows a great deal of American history.
        Your tone is that of a didactic Sunday School teacher.
        Prayers belong in church or mosque or synagogue, or as Jesus, said, “in your closet.”
        They are addressed to God, not to spectators and television cameras. If you prayer in this fashion, it is not prayer, but the show of the Publicans. And it is not smart.
        Everyone has a duty to maintain a civil society. It is the incivility of some of the press about which Trump complains, and rightly.
        You cannot use prayer as defensive wall. It is wrong-headed entirely.
        A civil society does not invite conflict over private matters or over the trivial or technical points someone like you raises.
        You must know damn well that a Muslim doing exactly the same thing at a rally with a verse from Koran would incite people just like yourself to anger.
        No one with a fully-functioning brain wants that.

        • “Your tone is that of a didactic Sunday School teacher” Ummm pot-kettle-black comes to mind.
          “You cannot use prayer as defensive wall” What?
          Actually, having numerous Muslim friends and spent years in the ME, breaking for prayers before and during meetings is common. I know that you do not want to be informed but the greeting of every person any time you meet is Salaam Aleikum, a blessing. And is used in all meetings as a starting point. The most common and irritating Muslim response to any query is ‘Inshallah’.
          The thing that incites persons like me is Po faced individuals who write things like ‘full stop’ as a means of imputing that somehow their opinion is the last word, instead of just another opinion by a pompous twerp.
          If you knew anything of American history, you would be aware that opening any and all meetings, private, government, school, etc with a prayer is the American tradition.
          It is only in the last few years that troublesome idiots want to turn any action or words into a PC cause for dissent.
          Sad really sad.

      • Gee, Sam, that is just so clever.
        There’s the way to a better society or to intelligent debate about anything, make fun of people’s names.
        You do realize that were we all to do what you do, everything, including all our political and religious institutions, would collapse into babbling chaos?
        But I suspect you’d think that just fine.

  1. Spot on Article, she is making America Proud of her heritage and stands as a reminder to all of America’s Judeo/Christian Principles. BRAVO !!!!
    I pray that May God Keep America Safe and Protect her from all enemies foreign and domestic, amen.
